iPlayer Unrequested Programme Starts by Itself Before End of Programme I am Watching

As each iPlayer programme is ending, usually but not always as the credits start, iPlayer pops up a box that another programme (chosen by iPlayer not me) will start in 7 seconds.

 

There's no way I can see to stop this so one misses some of the credits or occasionally the climax of the programme one's trying to watch.

 

Anyone know how to cancel the next programme, or ideally stop it happening in the first place?

I'm guessing it's supposed to be a feature and not a fault???

 

Thanks!

Hi @Michael-1 

 

If you go into the BBC iPlayer App settings (Settings & Help) then select Other Settings where there is an option under Autoplay to switch this feature off Smiley Wink

Thanks for that!  I spent 1/2 hour in the iPlayer "Help" without finding anything...
